Leading Tamil actor Arya has been engulfed in a controversy over the past few months after shocking allegations were made against him by a German-based Sri Lankan woman named Vidja after which he appeared before the Chennai city police's Cyber Crime wing a few days back. She had claimed that Arya had given her assurances of marrying her, including alleging that he had cheated her of Rs. 70 lakh. In her complaint, she mentioned that she questioned the actor after his marriage to actress Sayyeshaa in 2019, who told her that he would divorce her after the debts were cleared. Producing the chats supposedly with Arya as evidence to the Chennai city cybercrime, a probe was then launched.

The case has now witnessed significant development. During their investigation, the police discovered that two other persons were chatting with Vidja impersonating Arya. The police found that the two persons - Mohammed Armaan and Mohammed Hussaini - from the Pulainthope area in Chennai had impersonated the actor and cheated Vidja of the amount, while also putting her through immense mental stress over a period of two years. The police have since arrested the duo and legal proceedings have also been initiated. This arrest has now come as a relief for actor Arya who is now cleared off the topic.

In that light, Arya thanked the Tamil Nadu Police for their swift action through his latest tweet. He also mentioned that the last few days have caused him mental trauma. Arya's tweet read, "I would like to thank Commissioner of Police @chennaipolice_ Additional Commissioner of Police-Central Crime Branch and Cyber Crime Team of Chennai city for arresting the Real culprit. It was a real mental trauma which I never expressed. Love to everyone who believed in me".

On the professional front, Arya is riding high on the massive success of Sarpatta Parambarai which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Up next, he has films like Enemy and Aranmanai 3 lined up for release.
